- Drug abuse
- Family abuse
- Perverted sexuality
All these negative social tragedies are amplified by the use of alcohol!
The Bible declares drunkenness is not wise and a hurdle to heaven.* The Apostle Paul warns in 1 Corinthians 5 and 6 about phony followers who are immoral, greedy, worship idols, curse others, get drunk, cheat others or worse. (5:11; 6:9-12)
He goes on to say that true followers may need to avoid contact with these phony followers, lest reproach be brought on the church and the gospel by the appearance of approving their sinful conduct (5:9-13).
Paul summed it up by saying “God paid a great price for you. So use your body to honor God” (6:13-20 CEV).
